's positions went under the knife during a speech at the military institute. romney laid out a complete reversal on his strategy for middle east peace. >> i'll recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel. >> the new mitt romney is committed to a two-state solution, but this is not what mitt romney told a group of donors in private. >> priceless tape. direct from romney's mouth, you hope for some stability and hope something will happen. listen to the new mitt romney today in his opinion on hope. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east aligned with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. >> the new mitt romney didn't flinch when he made a false accusation. >> i'll champion free trade and restore it as a critical element of our strategy. both in the middle east and across the world. the president has not signed one new free trade agreement in the past four years. i'll reverse that failure. >> romney's correct. the president has not signed one new
the speech titled "the mantle of leadership." his backdrop, the virginia military institute. romney expected to focus on a vision of peace through strength and lay out how to handle a people in syria, libya and egypt. >> he is taking a step bc and looking. this is the world we live in. the president talks about a pivot to asia. the middle east is really unsettling, unraveling and let's take a look at how we got here and where we go from here. >> the address will draw what his campaign calls great contrast with president obama. the president's team already firing back with a new add titled simply "policy." >> reckless. amateurish. that's what news immediate why and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe-filled july tour of england, israel and poland. when our u.s. diplomats were attacked, "the new york times" said romney's knee jerk response showed an extraordinary lack of presidential character. >> let's dig deeper. joining me now is nbc news correspondent peter alexander. good morning to you. explain to us the importance and the backdrop of the speech today for team romney.
of the speech today for team romney. >> reporter: yeah, thomas. as you know, this is not the first time spoken about foreign policy issues but the timing is critical now after the strong debate performance and the final month the campaign says they believe what the independent eyeballs focusing on this. as you noted, trying to demonstrate that peace through strength and effectively accuse the president of being a weak leader who has been bad for the military of this country. among some of the comments are the following. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share that hope but hope is not a strategy. there will also be familiar themes that we expect to hear here. the significance of avoiding defense cuts, specifically referring to sequestration and could affect tens of thousands of people here in virginia specifically. the need to reinvest in the military and the significance of working closely with america's allies. a lot of these contrasts rhetorical more than actual contrasts and witness. he's been vague as some notice
speech. >>> welcome back. in the wake of strong debate performance last week, mitt romney hoped to capitalize on his momentum, and today delivering a major foreign policy address in virginia accusing president obama of a lack of leadership on the global stage. cnbc's john harwood joins us again with additional details. good evening. >> good evening, larry. mitt romney spoke at the virginia military institute in the very important swing state of virginia. he didn't lay out much of a policy contrast with president obama. they're in similar places, but he did cast a contrast in terms of himself as a man of action and president obama who is somebody who is more passive. here's mitt romney. >> it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history, not to lead from behind leaving our destiny at the mercy of events. >> now, what mitt romney is trying to do is drive some of the polls that have shown significant progress for him post-debate. look at these three. it's a mixed verdict. you have, first of all, the very well respect

convention and mitt romney's speech set that campaign back several weeks in my opinion. they got no bump and no bounce. in fact, they probably got a negative bounce. so tonight it is incumbent on him to do two things. one is make the big picture. he's the free enterpriser and president obama is the big government planner. and those are big differences in philosophy in government. two, romney has a tax cut plan. he has a spending cut plan. he has an energy plan. he's got to make it clear. he's got to explain to people the connection between his plans and the economic recovery that we have not yet had. that's a tall order for romney. and he's going to have to fight hard for it while the, of course is attacking him. >> you said earlier i was watching kudlow and company, you said the first impression is important. he's got to swing right away. you think he'll do that? >> that's my hunch. i've seen this before. aggressive. he's got to put this sort of line in the sand. here's what i believe. and here's what he believes. and there's a big choice in this election. he is the guy who wants redist

. that's what i talked about. a lot of mitt romney, you know, i've listened to a lot of his speeches. he talks about the same thing. this is a foundational election. this is an election about what we are. well, who are we, and i think that's why i put this book out there, talking about who we are as americans, because barack obama has a different vision than our founders' vision of what america is to be, and that's fine. he wants to transform america, but from what to what, and this book answers the question from what, a country that believes in our founding documents of god-given rights and limited government and free people being able to form families and communities and build a great america from the bottom up as opposed to president obama's view which is, no. you know, we can't do that anymore. it's not fair. we need the government to make those decisions and allocate resources and opportunity, not the people. so i think more of that talk, and i think, again, if you listen to romney's speeches, he does talk about those things, but we're trying to reinforce that out among the grass ro
